MoDOT Launches Route 54 Bridges Website
One Lane Closed at Westbound Middle River Bridge Beginning July 24

JEFFERSON CITY – To keep customers informed of the progress involving the U.S. Route 54 Bridge Improvements in Callaway County, the Missouri Department of Transportation has developed a webpage about the $7.3 million project.

The webpage is found at this web address: www.MoDOT.org/Central/Route54CallawayBridges.htm. A link to the Route 54 Bridge Improvements webpage is also located on MoDOT's Central District website at http://www.modot.org/central.

The webpage includes a general project overview, information about current bridge work, location maps, future construction schedules, as well as the ability to sign up for periodic e-mail updates about the project. This page will also serve as an information hub to give motorists advance notice of any major traffic impacts that could potentially affect travel.

The project began on July 20 with the rehabilitation of the westbound Route 54 bridge over Middle River. The bridge is located approximately six miles southwest of Fulton. Motorists will begin experiencing an around-the-clock, single-lane closure on westbound Route 54 on Monday, July 24 at the bridge. One lane will be open at all times during the work. The closure will remain in place until work is completed in mid-September.

During the next 15 months, MoDOT plans to improve nine total bridges on Route 54 between I-70 and New Bloomfield in Callaway County.

The nine bridges are:

  • Route 54 westbound over Middle River
  • Route 54 eastbound over Richland Creek
  • Route 54 westbound over Richland Creek
  • Route 54 eastbound over the KCR Railroad
  • Route 54 eastbound over Stinson Creek
  • Route 54 eastbound over Business Route 54
  • Route 54 eastbound over Interstate 70
  • Route 54 westbound over Interstate 70
  • Route 54 westbound over Hillers Creek

The bridges over Richland Creek and the KCR Railroad will get new decks. The remaining bridges will be rehabilitated.

In addition to the bridge improvements, the project will also include safety improvements to the Route 54 corridor. Contractors working for MoDOT will install guard cable along sections of Route 54 from the Missouri River Bridge in Jefferson City to I-70 in Kingdom City. The guard cables will increase safety and will help reduce crossover collisions along these areas of Route 54.
